How to use an Apple Watch during sleep with watchOS 8?

In watchOS 7 I had a green button (Sleep mode?) in the Control Center that turned off the screen of the Apple Watch and required you to turn the crown really far to turn the screen back on. Excellent to use in bed, while sleeping. This seems gone in watchOS 8…

How should I use my Apple Watch in bed using watchOS 8?

(Back to Theater mode? That is much easier to disable since it only requires a tap on the screen instead of turning the crown really far)

I use a red font only watch face and switch on theatre mode so the screen only activates upon tapping it. Works fine.

Oh, that’s because of the new Focus feature…

I think that’s the first time I have to research how to access a basic feature on an Apple product.
